Earlier this year I began talking with Jimmy Palmiotti on Twitter about his comics, passions and his life in the industry and we finally met in person at the Birds Of Prey world premiere and it was a great moment. Recently I asked Jimmy if he would like to come on to my Podcast and talk about his career in comics and also his latest creation, Pop Kill, that he has created with Dave Johnson. This story sounds insane and I can’t wait to find out more!
I was so pleased when he agreed to come on as there is so much I wanted to ask! We had a lengthy chat about so much and to hear somebody speak so passionately about their characters and the comic industry was a joy.
